the real decisions. the man that we talked about last year, mr. obama. we had real hopes for him. right away, he caved on afghanistan. what he has said since then is an extension of the military industrial security state. now it is global. the soviet union ended in 1991, but we didn't stop growing. now we are listening on the whole world. we have space weaponry. we have drowned weaponry. we have cyber warfare. we have the -- we are the strongest country in the world bar none. no one can stand up to us. tavis: what do you make of the high hopes that you and others had for this president on this and other issues? let's just stay with the spying and the drones in the torture. -- and the torture. >> i am really surprised. i really believed in obama. i believed in transparent government policies and none of that has transpired. on the contrary, he is a better manager of the empire than bush ever was. it is wrong. he is a constitutional s cholar. bush made a fatal flaw. we were attacked by terrorists. instead of hunting down those people through intelligence, informers, through the usual proc

instructed to block is this transactions. now to the continued problems of president obama's health-care overhaul. this afternoon numbers were released for enrollment in the first month, and the numbers were disappointing. just over 106,000 people have signed up, and only 27,000 managed to do so on that website. fewoke with mark just a months ago. how bad is it? but i think it is pretty bad. they were expecting half a million people to sign on. he says it is showing things are going to get that her, and all of that may be true, but this comes after an appalling launch of the website. i think much worse than that, it's not just the enemies of obama turning on this. friends.his >> how damaging is this politically? >> it could be everything about is legacy. if it goes down it will be a terrible black mark against him. we know that because though clinton is running away from it. he believes it, but he also must think, i want to give hillary some distance. >> or a conspiracy. still to come, it was the fight which forever changed the sport of toxic. tonight we look back at the tragic outc

. ♪ >> in a meeting with iraq's prime minister nouri al-maliki this afternoon, president obama says he wants the countries to be strong partners. with increased violence across iraq, there is a question that the united states is willing to offer greater assistance to secure the country. now maliki would like more military aid, including advisers to train security forces. for more on what the u.s. should do, i spoke with america's former ambassador to iraq a short time ago. should prime minister nouri al- maliki get the military aid he is asking for? >> he should, but with conditions. >> what should they be? >> you cannot win the battle by military and intelligence means alone. you have to have a political vision and political accountability. you have to go after not only those in other ranks who are terrorists but you have to go after people in your own ranks in the government who are oppressing some of these people. >> a rax prime minister is blaming syria for this uptick in violence. is he right to do that or is a convenient? >> he is right to do that, but the middle east is a mess. strugg

cities. toesident obama can't seem catch a break to change american health care. the website is a mess. people are not signing up and republicans are doing what they can to weaken the law. maybe he should take a trip to kentucky. the southern state has become a symbol of success in the rollout of obamacare. mark mardell has been to investigate what is going on. >> kentucky is a land of contrasts, from the beauty of of racehorses to the poverty the rural landscape. it is the worst of the 50 states in cancer, not far from heart disease and premature death. it is the sort of place where obamacare is meant to make a difference. this person hopes it does because she has had some bad news. the cancer is back. >> it is in my bone marrow. i have to stay focused. i have a daughter, you know. >> if you do get greater cover, how much difference will it make? >> a big difference. it might take a load off of me. obama has done something great. you know, for the united states. isple complain that nobody going to be totally satisfied. >> after a month of asking, nobody can tell her what it will mean

was married to jackie o. there were so many comparisons between brock obama and jenna kennedy when he ran. he got the endorsement of caroline kennedy and ted kennedy. before barack obama, there was the picture of bill clinton shaking jfk's hand at the white house. he tried to get some of that kennedy mystique. i wonder whether or not, when all is said and done, it is impossible, given the cynicism, given the nature of our society, that anybody will ever rise to the celebrity -- to the level of celebrity as president that john kennedy had and still has 50 years later. >> i think you're absolutely right that it would be a monumental achievement. the kind of 24/7 news cycle that presidents have to struggle with -- also, it is the fact that kennedy had an unfinished presidency, and we can write on that blank slate and he thing we want. you know, when the president serves for eight years the way bill clinton did, and now the way barack obama is serving, people see their flaws. they are not able to sustain that kind of magic, the mystique which they enter the office with. kennedy still holds on to
